Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

The Ceasar



_______________________________________________________
“ One more job
To be over with “ ,
The gravedigger , he thought .

And when he saw
The casket ,
With “ JFK “ on it ,
He did not stop ;
Melancholy , just said ,
“ Ah but another Caesar “ ,

And kept on digging .

Calendar Girl



_______________________________________________________
Calendar Girl
I love you
Although you are dead ;
And I will be dead myself
Someday ,
But eternal is our love
For ,
There will always be ,
A Calendar Girl
And a boy

Madly in love with her .

The Haunt



_______________________________________________________
The days bygone
I  speak of thee ,
O days that are gone .

What a life was that
Carefree , happy , glorious
Knowing not what future held ;

I roamed the realms
Of Dead ,
Real and unreal
Characters met ,
Oh, them wonderful people !

I loved thee , Helen ,
More than I did my soul ,
On that dreadful flight
From Athens .

And with dagger
Sought I reconciliation
With you ,
O fair Juliet !
When from the mist of Death
Thou called upon my love .

And you sweet Rosaline ,
Ophelia,
And others all ,
Forget shall I not
For thou hast ,
Those moments few
In my memories left ,
Sweet
With the fragrance
Of your love

Sublime .

In Wilderness



_________________________________________________________________________________
I cry in wilderness
Knowing you to be ,
Beyond
The reaches of my voice ;
My tears shed ,
To moisten thirsty lips ,
Knowing you beyond

My kiss’s reach .
